The new Bat For Lashes album The Haunted Man will be released on Oct. 15, and today we get our first taste of new music and and the saucy NSFW album cover. Check out the video for "Laura" and click here to view the NSFW Bat For Lashes album cover.
The band that loves to exploit noisy bursts of music -- Deerhoof, will release a new album titled Breakup Song on Sept. 4 via Polyvinyl Records. They've just launched a new web site called Jingletron to listen to parts of the album. “We've just finished a sensational record of Cuban-flavored party-noise-energy music. We called it Breakup Song, but don't expect a bunch of Grammy®-baiting sob stories, OK? In Deerhoof's thesaurus, freedom's just another word for feeling good again and raising hell and getting away with it. Stick with us and the bad guys with guns will never catch up,” said Dummer Greg Saunier.
The holiest of holies in underground music -- Sebadoh -- has released a new EP next year, until then you can check it out via Bandcamp. "Containing five songs, three by Lou Barlow (“Keep the Boy Alive”, “Arbitrary High” and “All Kinds”) and two (“My Drugs” and “I Don’t Mind”) by Jason Loewenstein, with drums by Bob D’Amico, the EP features tracks that won’t be on the album the band is planning to release next year. And Lou says that if you liked old Sebadoh – circa Bubble & Scrape era – you’ll like these. At least he hopes so" says Backstagerider today. Stay tuned to the Sebadoh Twitter to stay up to date.
Sub Pop band/guy Father John Misty is going on tour this Fall in support of his album Fear Fun. Tour dates start in September and wind out through the rest of the year, and include Outside Lands Festival , FYF Fest, Austin City Limits Festival and S.S. Coachella cruises.
Remember the classic (and OG original) "music discovery" web site Epitonic, that blazed a trail in the 2000'a turning everyone on to great new music? After disappearing for a number of years, the site came back last year and has today announced a new Epitonic recording label. They started to doing live sessions in the Saki Records store that's connected to Epitonic HQ, and will release those on the new label, aptly called "Epitonic." Good name recognition there. Check out their first release with Autumn Owls.

"Named Epitonic saki Sessions, Epitonic has been hosting free and all-ages live sessions and posting the audio and video content as exclusive content weekly. Epitonic and saki have hosted such artists as Maps and Atlases, Murder By Death, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Brokeback, An Horse, Ida, Marissa Nadler, and dozens more, " said the announcement from Epitonic.

The classic David Lynch movie Eraserhead will see its soundtrack released on Aug. 7 via Sacred Bones Records. It will include a 7-inch single of Peter Ivers’ “In Heaven” along with artwork and an accompanying book. "It’s no stretch to consider this soundtrack an experimental, early industrial masterpiece. Eraserhead’s individual passion and personal tone shines through even in the thickest moments of fierce static, an audio undertaking that took Lynch and sound designer Alan Splet years to perfect," said an announcement about the album.
